BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- An Israeli soldier was killed on Tuesday by a rocket fired from the Gaza Strip, Israel's army said.

They identified the casualty as 18-year-old Yosef Fartuk, from Israeli settlement Immanuel in the northern West Bank.

He was killed by a rocket fired from Gaza into the Eshkol Regional Council, a military statement said.

Another Israeli man, a Bedouin construction worker for the Israeli ministry of defense, was also killed on Tuesday after a rocket exploded near Beersheba, The Times of Israel reported.

Another man was reported injured in the attack.

The army said earlier that five Israeli soldiers were lightly to moderately injured by a rocket fired from the Gaza Strip, without specifying the location.

Four Israelis were also lightly injured when a rocket directly hit a six-story building in Rishon Lezion, just south of Tel Aviv, Israeli news site Ynet said.
